Former Sri Lankan Cricket captain and current Selection Committee head Sanath Jayasuriya said that he was looking forward to the report into the current inquiry regarding a skit at the Sri Lanka Cricket awards ceremony held recently.

“I’m awaiting a report into the entire episode” he told Daily Mirror Online.

Earlier the Daily Mirror reported that according to sources, elements within Sri Lanka Cricket itself had been instrumental in including the skit which had come under fire from certain officials who had been portrayed in it.

Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage earlier said that he was awaiting a report and has written to the Secretary of Sri Lanka Cricket Nishantha Ranathunga asking for a full inquiry into the incident. (HF)

    If they had just forgotten about it the matter would have died. By all this investigation hullabaloo now everyone wants to watch the skit and laugh at them.

    SLC should not have invited him as a guest and then insult him. Its not like making jokes of him in another forum. You don't invite a person as a guest and make jokes of him.

    Satrical humour against people in show-biz and politics is par for the course. You cant take it, as you know nothing about either.

    samanala Friday, 20 September 2013 05:53 AM

    Sannath we love you as a Sportsman but not not as a Politician. .Get rid of dirty politics, be independent.

    SLC must take Puswedilla into custody and question him under third degree.

    insecure and small minded

    npjPJ Friday, 20 September 2013 06:53 AM

    Making a issue out of this is akin to more jokes.

    Cobra Friday, 20 September 2013 06:53 AM

    Yeah, we sent you up there because we love and respect for the great cricketer you are and hoped against hope that once there you will change the idiotic thinking of the rest of your clan in that August assembly. But we were wrong, You have turned out to be another brainwashed two-bit politician who just cannot tak a bit of r satire!!!

    It looks like the "hat" is fitting a lot of people at SLC.

    suresh Friday, 20 September 2013 07:20 AM

    True. Besides, they didnt say anything u didnt do?

    Ravishan Friday, 20 September 2013 07:23 AM

    Its not ethical to poke fun at Sanna's english.I feel sorry for him

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 20 September 2013 07:27 AM

    How about your SKIT as brand manager for CIFL? Why dont you have a conscience bcos all those who lost money in this endeavour are the very poor.

    ANTON Friday, 20 September 2013 07:32 AM

    BUT I LOVE HIM AS A SINGER AND A BOLLYWOOD DANCER.

    Dammika Friday, 20 September 2013 07:34 AM

    Man ... it was just a comic act ... whether on you or anyone. Years back former President JRJ called the cartoonists to draw his funny pictures in front of him. If you want to wear the hat wear it

    wac Friday, 20 September 2013 08:09 AM

    While you are waiting for a report, all the cricket fans are waiting for better cricket from our players.

    Veddha Friday, 20 September 2013 08:11 AM

    learn to live with parody and criticism when holding public office, surely there was an element of truth behind the skit.

    Fayad Friday, 20 September 2013 08:37 AM

    Report will read - Skit was full of truth

    Regi Friday, 20 September 2013 08:37 AM

    Guilty conscious pricks the mind.
